    Friday Ramblings-Everyday Stuff Gets in the Way

    Sorry I haven’t posted much this week but it’s been errands and keeping busy with writing and teaching. I’m guessing those of you who are content creators know that some days, there’s not enough energy left to even write a short post. Tuesday and Thursday felt like that for me. Hopefully, I’ll get back on track next week. There are some sales and bundle giveaways coming up too. I love working with my fellow entrepreneurs and I’m often in awe of the products they produce (sometimes week after week). I’m making progress with my new book, still on course for a late November release date. I’m also rethinking the new…

    Friday Ramblings-First Week of a Boot Camp

    My apologies for not posting anything else besides the Monday Motivation and Friday Ramblings. A new boot camp kicked off, I got my private students settled into their May schedule. and worked on projects that have been on my to do list. If you work for yourself, you know how overwhelming it can be to be a one man (woman) show. And it’s spring, so there’s outside work with cleaning up the mess that the winter left. I also tried to work on my old web site with its new name, and yes, I did something wrong and relied on Nicole over at Amaraq websites to help me out yet…

    Teach a Skill, Learn a Skill

    Have a skill to share…. I’m seeing an upswing in the number of students I have over at Skillshare, plus the amount of minutes they’ve watched of my classes. More people have time on their hands, people are suddenly out of work and looking for new skills or something to do besides binge watching shows. Do you have a skill you can teach? Most of us do. I think now would be a great time to put together a class and offer it on platforms like Skillshare or even create your own site for teaching. Also, do you need to learn a new skill, brush on on ones like sewing,…

    Make Money From Your Site…not someone else’s

    Should you sell your products and services on someone else site? Less than a year ago, I would have told you, yes, but now I’m thinking the smartest entrepreneur puts their wares on their own site first, builds up traffic, grows the mailing list and then and only then, thinks about other people’s sites. Take e-books for example. Five years ago, I would never have thought about trying to sell any of my books on my own writing site. Okay, call me a lazy writer, but online stores like Amazon were bringing me in sales so I didn’t see the point of spending more time building a store. Even some…

    Making Money by Sharing Your Skills

    Teaching, coaching, tutoring, so many names for the ways you share your skill with others. One thing they all have in common is it’s a great way to make some extra money or even turn it into your full time business. I turned to tutoring during the Great Recession when more freelance assignments were far and few between, and more work was getting outsourced. I enjoyed it so much that I actually started to drop some of my freelance writing gigs and switched more to teaching others how to write. I began teaching classes through some of the chapters of the Romance Writers of America. About four years ago, I…

    Friday Ramblings-Tackling the To Do List

    February is under way and how are you doing with your to do list? This week I finished creating lessons for a promotion boot camp I’ll be teaching next month. I’d been working on them and the workbook for about two or three weeks so I was happy to have that project completed. I thought about switching to something completely different but then decided I might as well stick with lessons and workbooks. I’ve opted to get started on creating the lessons for the upcoming summer writing retreat. For the last month or so, (if you add up the lessons, the blog posts, my other writing projects), I’m probably averaging…
